Background: Secret of Aussie beer brewing discovered by Core Brewing Concept.
- Water (1 gallon)
- Herbs (for taste)
- Sugar (3/8 of cups )
Naturally, you will be doing some boiling and cooking, so besides stove, you are going to need a kettle or a pot, large enough to hold about 2 gallons of water. As you read on, pour about a gallon of water in the pot, and leave it to boil. All of the equipment should be sterilized, but without chemistry used, but rather with boiling water.
How, while water heats, you could use rolling pin to mildly crush the herbs you are going to add later. This is of high importance. Those grains are going to add the taste and colour to your beer. Before boiling those, try to roast them a bit. The longer they are roasting, the stronger and darker beer will be. Once the water boils, remove it from the fire, and proceed to the next step.
Slowly and carefully add malt to the water. This mixture can be bought in almost every store which deals with this kind of business. Basically, it will save you time and nerves, but if you wish, you can follow many homemade recipes for preparing malt. Try using the one which will give a sunny-yellow colour and fresh, biting and sharp taste your beverage. This is most common taste of Aussie beers, and rare you will find some sweet beers.
Your beer brewing process begins here, so be extra careful. Stir it up slowly, until the mass equals. Return it to the stove, to boils just once more. Once you have finished this, leave it to cool down. Once it is mild, add up beer yeast, for it will kickstart fermenting process, thus turning sugar to alcohol. Leave container (of about 3 gallons in volume) somewhere dark and with constant temperature, and do not disturb the mixture.
After few weeks, it is time for you to wrap things up. Take about 3/8 of cups of sugar, and boil it into the water for about five minutes. It is great rule of thumb to use fructose here, if possible.
Once it cools down, pour it into clean and dry vessel, and pour your beer on top of it. From that point, divide beer between bottles, and put on a cap. Here you should pay attention that no bottle has any cracks, for the level of generated carbon dioxide can be really high, and you don’t want to see your treasure popping around like popcorns, right? After about ten days, you beer is ready for consummation. Cheers, and bottoms up!
